    Commodities - Precious Metals

    Post by Ulfaro on Wed Oct 08, 2008 3:33 pm

    Just a little tip for these crazy times, I buy silver bullion from these guys: http://www.apmex.com/ as a hedge against inflation. Gold would work too but silver appears to be way undervalued at a gold/silver ratio of 1:78 when historically it should be 1:15.

    I'm no expert or big time investor, just someone who believes that things may get worse before they become better.

    Just wanted to pass this tip along. I don't recommend a Paper ETF. Physical bullion is tangible with intrinsic value no matter where you go in the world.

    Silver rounds or American Silver Eagles(ASE)....your choice as long as its .999 fine. Another note, ASE's qualify for ROTH IRAs. Start small....about $16 for one bullion.


    Cheers!

    Speaking of silver, there is a new form of battery coming soon, a Silver-Zinc blend with a water based catalyst. It outdoes Li-ion by an additional 40% and has no chance to catch fire since it's water based. SIlver will zoom fast once this catches on.
